From the DAISNAID* file: Designing with Daffodils

It sounded like a good idea at the time: 'Pineapple Prince' daffodils behind the Hosta 'Maui Buttercups.' There was space waiting to be filled with spring interest, and the Hosta foliage would obscure the fading daffodils.

So I planted them there, in front of the south fence.
I had a major D'oh! moment while sitting on the swing one evening recently. I realized I had forgotten the tendency of the daffodil to exhibit phototropism. In other words, the blasted things would be facing the fence.

I think I'll switch these with the big yellow tulips in the raised bed. Tulips, fortunately, aren't so phototropic.

(I've been MIA online lately because of parenting demands. School projects, school shows, feising, and working in the garden have been keeping me very busy.)
